Talking Killed a coil burner

So after ~5 years of faithful service, I went out to the garage placed a set of coals on my trusty coil burner. While the coals got started, I came inside to pack my tasty bowl of NDA and set up my Temsah wheat. A few minutes later I went out to retrieve my glowing red coco's and reached to turn off the burner. As I did so, I hear a little "popping sound" and noticed a bit of smoke coming from beneath the pan under the coils

I proceeded to remove the coals, unplug the burner, and set it on the ground clear of anything. Fortunately there was no damage to anything but the burner, but I guess you could say it was "cooked" lol. A quick check on Walgreen's website revealed that the local store had one in stock, so a quick trip into town and I was back in business

Anybody else manage to kill an electric coil burner? Any good stories?

I got one of those coil burners from walgreens, and it would act strangely... It would get red hot, turn off, red hot, turn off.. I was at wits end with it... So I cracked it open and bypassed the temperature knob so that its more or less a heating element wired directly to the wall socket.. Now it works like a charm

HAHA. My burner was DESTROYED when it finally died.

*It was all bent up, (the coil was separating and each ring looked like they were taking on their own "orbit" to be semi- descriptive), the actual metal was chipping off the metal coil and it was splitting! The feet of the burner were melted, and then finally after it's many faithful years of service (at least 3), it died in the exact same fashion as yours.

Went to wags, after the bowl was done and bought a new one I don't like this one as much as my walmart one though. That and it cost more 10.00 instead of 4.00

Agreed. $10 at Wallgreens for a super-convenient burner that lasts five years? Yes please.

Just to clarify here - this was NOT the $10 Walgreens burner that died. I don't know how much it cost or where it was purchased (my wife bought it). I can't speak for the life expectancy of the Walgreens burner - time will tell

I can't use my stove - Glass top I did at the other house though, and after the hell I put my burner through I will never use a stove top again!
